We will see a lot of Chevy Trucks in 2018. Here is Matchbox’s entry.

This isn't the only time we will be celebrating 100 years of Chevy Trucks with Mattel.  The blue brand has its own Walmart-only assortment as well, coming very soon (as is … Continue reading We will see a lot of Chevy Trucks in 2018.

Matchbox is now doing trucks the way Matchbox should be doing trucks…

Find the latest Matchbox at Wheel Collectors...Oh no, this is another of those posts when Lamley waxes poetic about the return of Matchbox.  Where is that Robert Downey Jr meme where he is rolling his eyes when we need it?  Puh-leeeease, we have heard it all before.Yes, you have heard it all before.  But it's … Continue reading Matchbox is now doing trucks the way Matchbox should be doing trucks…

Supervan might take the cake, but the HW Heritage Silverado 4×4 & BMW 2002 are no slouches…

I am still not over how splendid Supervan is.  Since the Lamley feature earlier this week, we have learned that is was designed by Mark Jones, a Mattel vet who created quite a buzz this weekend when his Mazda RX-3 was unveiled at JCCS.  Mark has done some amazing models for both Hot Wheels and … Continue reading Supervan might take the cake, but the HW Heritage Silverado 4×4 & BMW 2002 are no slouches…

Will we ever see two Hot Wheels Mainlines again like Phil Riehlman’s 2006 ’55 Chevy Panel & Karmann Ghia?

It hasn't even been 10 years, but the further we get from it, the stranger it seems.It is an era of cost control at Mattel.  Plastic is replacing metal in many cases, moving parts are removed, and the 4-part rule (chassis, interior, body, windows) is adhered to in almost all cases.It has also kept many … Continue reading Will we ever see two Hot Wheels Mainlines again like Phil Riehlman’s 2006 ’55 Chevy Panel & Karmann Ghia?

First Look: Hot Wheels BMW M4, Chevy Super Volt, and another Batmobile…

Yes, normally I would just show the BMW M4.  But there are two other new models from Batch G that have garnered some interest, and since I would dedicate a whole post to them, I will tack them on here.But methinks the BMW is what will interest our readers the most.  The 4 Series is … Continue reading First Look: Hot Wheels BMW M4, Chevy Super Volt, and another Batmobile…

Wagon Wednesday: Opening an Auto World Ford Country Squire Ultra Red Chase…

We have probably made it clear enough that while we won't be collecting most Auto World models, we are TOTALLY in on the Land Yacht station wagons.Auto World introduced the Chevy Kingswood in green and Ford Country Squire in white several months ago, and they were instantly must-haves:And then recently they released the recolors in … Continue reading Wagon Wednesday: Opening an Auto World Ford Country Squire Ultra Red Chase…

First Look: Hot Wheels ’65 Chevy Impala Super Treasure Hunt…

This will probably not get too many votes for Best Super of the Year.  It's an older casting, and one that hasn't been used much lately.  Most will likely compare it to the Riviera Super from last year.  We agree.But this has a little nostalgia attached to it.  At least for me.  When I returned … Continue reading First Look: Hot Wheels ’65 Chevy Impala Super Treasure Hunt…

Cool is Cool is Cool: Greenlight 1968 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne with Camper…

No, we don't feature a lot of Greenlight here.  We have heard from a lot of you about that, and we probably don't have a sufficient reason as to why that is.But then again, when you think about it there are a lot of diecast lines we haven't featured.  Have you ever seen M2?  Or … Continue reading Cool is Cool is Cool: Greenlight 1968 Chevrolet C10 Cheyenne with Camper…

First Look: Hot Wheels Zamac ’13 Camaro Special Edition, Chevy Silverado, and the two molds of the Toyota AE86…

We are out our local Walmart's mercy when it comes to the Zamacs.  Sometimes they arrive in droves, sometimes they don't arrive at all.  The last batch of 2013, with the Aventador J, never made it to our area.The latest batch has taken its sweet time to arrive around here, but I finally encountered it … Continue reading First Look: Hot Wheels Zamac ’13 Camaro Special Edition, Chevy Silverado, and the two molds of the Toyota AE86…
